Pediatricians, who save children, are forced to do a lot of manual tests, which often leads to inaccuracies in the diagnosis of the newborn. Prolonged ignorance of the disease can lead to severe consequences, for example, anemia. In addition, it is very important to identify infectious diseases during pregnancy, because in this case the fetus is exposed to multiple threats of the disease even in the womb. On a high-quality apparatus, which is needed by the Institute of Pediatrics, Obstetrics, and Gynecology of the NAMH of Ukraine, it is easy to carry out all these studies.

We are an initiative group of 29 young, energetic and not indifferent people. Many of us are mothers, and we already have the experience of having a baby and know how important it is to undergo a diagnostic examination during pregnancy, especially to have high-quality medical equipment during childbirth. Also among us, there are young girls who plan to have children and want the child to be born healthy, and his life is not exposed to risks. Therefore, we want to be a contribution to the birth of healthy children and the creation of happy families in our country.
After the baby is born into the world, his body adapts to completely different environmental conditions and undergoes many changes. One of the adaptation mechanisms is jaundice of newborns. During the fetal life of a child, its blood contains much more erythrocytes than an adult's. This is due to the fact that he gets oxygen from the mother's blood through the umbilical cord, and sufficient saturation requires a large amount of hemoglobin, which is part of the red blood cells since it is hemoglobin that carries oxygen to organs and tissues.
When the birth-giving is preterm it is vital to ensure the nursing conditions that are close to the intrauterine. This is called the "growth-oriented nursing" and it is of particular importance for the physiological postnatal development of the preterm born child. In the mother's womb it is warm, dark and quiet, also the baby there is in the natural physiological position. In the modern medicine mother's warmth can be substituted by the special layings and positioners, which are the important elements of the non-invasive therapy and help with the nursing of the preterm born children.
Around 15 000 000 children in the world are born preterm annually. On average it is every tenth child. Preterm born children are a special category: they are very weak and fragile, their body functions are still immature. A baby born weighing less than 1500 grams, faces problems with respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive and nervous systems.
Prematurely born children are a special category of kids. We call them "Neterplyachki", because they are so eager to see this world, that they are born earlier than the set term. Many of such babies are born in our country. Every 20th child born in Ukraine is premature. Lives of such children depend on the modern equipment which doctors use in the intensive care and then nursing. Without the help of indifferent people, even a good doctor is helpless to save such a child.
In a case of the significant immaturity of the vital systems of prematurely born babies (for example if the child cannot breathe on its own), they are transferred to the children's reanimation department. Here babies stay in special incubators, covered with transparent caps with four holes – two on each side (for therapeutic manipulation).

Bright light hurts the eyes, something rattles all the time, it's cold and laying is not comfortable. This is how the world meets the Preemies, their first home is a plastic box - the incubator. First bed of a prematurely born child is towels and cloth, they feel cold, it is loud all around and it is scary. They'd be better off being wrapped in mother's embrace. Unfortunately, sometimes the child has to stay in the incubator for a long time and that embrace is only scheduled and short time.
What did you like the most in your childhood? A warm and comfortable embrace of parents, their kind, and gentle hands, right? Our little Preemies, that nursed in the Zaporizhia regional perinatal center, are in need of this warmth. First weeks of their lives are a test of strength. Testing with the light, loud sounds, cold and the absence of mother's hands.
